League of Conservation Voters Action Fund Endorses Joseph Kopser in TX-21

(Austin, TX) — Today, the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund announced their endorsement of Joseph Kopser for Congress in Texas’ 21st Congressional District. LCV Action Fund released the following statement:

“Joseph Kopser served our country with honor and we know he will do the same in Congress,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “We are proud to endorse his campaign because he is committed to investing in our clean energy economy and ensuring that every family in Texas has clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. He’s a scientist, an entrepreneur and a proven champion for moving our country to a greener future and creating new jobs that will support our families and communities.”

Kopser, an Army veteran and technology entrepreneur, released the following statement in response to the endorsement:

“I’ve been a “clean energy warrior” since I served in Iraq and saw firsthand the human consequences of our dependence on foreign oil. Whether it was in the Army or in my business, I’ve spent my career working towards the clean energy solutions that are good for people, good for profits, and most importantly, good for our planet. Now I’m running for Congress in a district with incredible potential for jobs in wind and solar. I’m fighting to make Central Texas a leader in the renewable energy economy, and partners like the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund will help get us there.”

The League of Conservation Voters Action Fund joins the Sierra Club, Environment Texas, and Clean Water Action in endorsing Kopser, who studied Aerospace Engineering at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Background:

Joseph Kopser is a 20-year Army veteran, technology entrepreneur, husband and father of three daughters, and Democratic nominee for Congress in TX-21. His candidacy is driven by concern for the future of our country and the path Washington leadership is taking. He is building a new coalition of voters who believe the values, priorities, and expectations of Texas’ 21st congressional district will serve as a model of service and representation for Texas and the United States.
